bottle date 12/9/15.

Wow, the nose on this was straight bourbon, soft caramel and vanilla. Taste was outstanding. Oak, tannin spice, loads of bourbon, vanilla which matched well with the porter. It was on the border of boozy, but I didn't get heat from the bourbon, it was very well balanced. I really, really enjoyed this. I would love to get my hands on another.

A: Pitch black with tan head. S: Sweet bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, a touch of roast. T: Big bourbon flavor, tobacco, smoke, vanilla, some dark chocolate and oak barrel. M: One of the best mouthfeels on a Hill Farmstead dark beer. A lighter end of full. O: This beer is great, it's bourbon forward without being boozy. The flavor is killer, it's like a bourbon county brand stout with the Shaun Hill refinement
